Poll #439132 Linux - how say?

How do you say Linux?

Something else?

If something else, how?

Update: Torvalds says Lih-nix! :o)

I never heard of Linux until I met Josh, and he calls it Lih-nux so that's why I do! *laughs* I'm such a sheep. Not a clue what Linux is at the end of the day tho!

When Josh is doing something on the PC and I can't tell what it is, I say "what are you up to on there?"
And he says "I'm doing blah-blah with Linux"
And I say "oh, geeky stuff".
*laughs* There's no point in him explaining anything like that to me!

Me either.
They're fully into it here, and all I hear is "blah, blah, blah"

In some versions of Linux there was a sound configurator .. sndconfig. When successeful it played a soundifle: "Hello, This is Linus Torvalds, and I pronounce Linux, Linux"

That is where I got it from.

Links to audio found here.
